These paintings were done with oil on paper using a "Dry Brush" technique. Oil dry brush is a painting technique where a paint brush is relatively dry but still holds paint. A very thin layer of color is applied to a paper. 

Dry brush is layered layer after layer and reworked with an eraser, at this point it is possible to incorporate different lighting effects and details. Images painted with a dry brush appear very similar to a photo.

It is not an easy technique which requires a lot of time to learn and master.

The eyes are beautiful - well, the whole animal is but the eyes really pull my focus. This must take forever to do - they're so detailed.

Where's the light source(s) coming from? The cats are next to each other but the tabby has dilated pupils. It looks like it's on drugs.
